While playing at Chamizal on Sunday, I was talking to a member about the permanent courts being built at Ascarate.
He asked, "Do you think people will drive all the way down there?"
I replied, "There are 35 people here at Chamizal today, and Ascarate is about 7 minutes to the east with no pigeons. So yeah, I think they will come."
People have asked about fees to enter the park. As of February of this year, Commissioners voted to do away with the $2 weekend fee, so there are no fees with the possible exception of holidays and major events.
So if you are driving in the area, check out Ascarate map (all streets 1-way; from entrance traffic circle take Tom Lea loop around and back to near entrance).
UPDATE: As of October 18 we are waiting for the contractor to complete repairs before the courts will be open to the public and there will be a dedication ceremony.
We are almost there.
